My take: I really like this scrub! First thing I want to note though, is that mine wasn't blue like the pictures on the product page :( I guess the blue part... melted? When I received it, mine was pretty much whitish and SLIGHTLY blue/green. But not pretty and blue like on the website. Oh well.
Mine is also A LOT more grainy than I've read in other reviews, but this isn't a problem for me. I use this in the shower, so the big grains dissolve quickly and it doesn't bother me. However for people with sensitive skin, it might be too harsh! THe good thing is if it's too harsh for your face, you can use it on your body too for soft smooth skin.
The smell might also bother some people, at first it is refreshing but after awhile I didn't like it so much. But then again you're washing it off so it doesn't matter too much. I used this scrub for a week straight, day & night, and it DID give me super soft skin and a glowing complexion as promised. It also was great at cutting back oil and leaving my skin feeling very clean and refreshed. But as with most products that give great results, my skin starts to tolerate it after awhile and doesn't get that same radiant glow like when I first started using it. So now I only use it 1-2 times a week to give my skin a great pick-me-up =)
My only gripe with this product is that the packaging sucks. Well I can't complain because many LUSH products are in tubs anyway. But still. I don't really like products in tubs because of the contamination issues... plus I find that the scrub tends to get stuck around the rim of the tub, which makes it harder to tightly close the lid when I'm done using it. But eh, not a huge deal.
Would I repurchase: Probably, if I had a LUSH where I live :(
